GHANA CIVIL AVIATION AUTHORITY
STRIKE BY GHANA METEOROLOGICAL AGENCY
The Ghana Civil Aviation Authority wish to assure the general public that contingency measures are in place to ensure safe and secure air travel, contrary to some media reports that flight operations are adversely affected due to the ongoing strike by the Ghana Meteorological Agency.
The Authority has put in place adequate measures to contain the situation for the entire duration of the strike, as well as ensure that flights coming into the country and those flying within the Accra Flight Information Region (FIR) receive the required weather information needed for smooth operation.
The aviation industry in Ghana is robust enough to deal with some of these exigencies. GCAA would like to assure the public that Aviation Safety and Security remains a foremost priority and that it would do all it takes to safeguard the confidence and trust that the public has reposed in the Authority.
